williams could have done that. the defense is saying no way, this is what happened here. you had evidence back then in 1984 that amos norwood had a sexual relationship. >> the victim. >> the victim, with terrance williams and not only that, you also had evidence back in 1984 that amos norwood, the victim in the case, had been abusing other boys as well, and you didn't turn that over to the defense. well, the judge listened to both sides and said to the defense you're right, this evidence should have been turned over to the defense back in 1984. the jurors should have had an opportunity to hear that when they were making their decision. jurors didn't have an opportunity to hear that and, ashley, you know this. i interviewed one of the jurors from 1984 just last week. they said had i known then what i know now, i would not have voted for the death penalty. >> not just that juror. already other jurors and actually isn't it the widow of amos as well has come out saying i am not so sure i am comfortable with this death penalty? do i have my wires crossed? >> the widow came out and said that sh
from our defense secretary panetta. western intelligence officials say the syrian government has one of the world's largest supplies of chemical and biological weapons. syrian officials have threatened to use them in the event of a foreign attack. today the defense secretary said there is evidence the regime has shuffled their stockpiles. >> there has been some intelligence with regard to some of the sites that there has been some movement in order for the syrians to better secure the chemicals. while there has been some limited moment, again, the major sites still remain in place, still remain secure. >>shepard: you may recall president obama warned the syrian government not to move their chemical weapons. listen. >> we cannot have a situation where chemical or biological weapons are falling into the hands of the wrong people. we have been very clear to the assad regime and also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we see a budge chemical weapons moving around or being utilized. >>shepard: a red line for us is if we see a bunch of chemical weapons being moved ar
on target than the romney campaign. he needs to put obama on the defensive and needs to remake his image. i think he needs a long strategy through all the debates. i'm not sure he can do all he needs to do in one debate. >> it's so great to have both of you here. come back. thank you. >>> lockheed martin and other defense contractors agreed to a white house request not to give lay-off notices to employees days before the election in november. those companies are anticipating thousands of lay-offs because of defense budget cuts and they are required to give workers 60 days notice. it's highly unlikely any budget cuts will be decided on before the election. the administration argues that pink slips should not go out because of "uncertainty." republicans are expressing outrage saying the administration strong armed the industry to cover up job losses. creamy spinach artichoke dip, crispy garlic chicken spring rolls. they're this season's must-have accessory. lean cuisine. be culinary chic. constipated? yeah. mm. some laxatives like dulcolax can cause cramps. but phillips' caplets don't. they h
issues, attacking the president on sequestration, the looming defense budget cuts effectively linking defense and national security to the economy which has been his primary message. the campaign has been flooding reporters with numbers and he mentioned them today, suggesting that sequestration cuts would effectively have an impact on 168,000 jobs, costing 168,000 jobs in the state. he said 136,000, 68,000 among small businesses specifically. and he was here with people in this critical battleground who he said have been to battle before. these are people in the military community, a lot of veterans here at american legion hall where he was speaking that he hopes will support his message of american strength through strength and not through weakness militarily. >> i have been a little puzzled by the campaign's posture on this because it was a republican and democratic agreement, the automatic triggers for these automatic cuts from sequestration if they didn't agree to a budget deal, and they didn't agree to a budget deal so this was something that the president and john boehner agreed
>> all new on dr. fill. >> this cougar defense is a joke. >> they still live under the same roof. >> you guys are divorced but you're living with ross. >> if that's not enough. >> why don't we tell the truth for just a minute. >> oh, let's do. >> what leaves dr. phil speechless. >> it is pretty hard to shock me, but you just did. if we're going to do something here that matters, then we've got to deal with the truth. >> if i could help you get this family back on track, are you willing to do that? this is going to be a changing day in your life. how are you? [cheering] how you doing? how you doing? okay, now, a miserable marriage, millions of dollars stolen out of the mouths of school children to shower luxuries on a much younger wife. the new york post reported she was a cougar with a vor rayous sexual appetite and the boy toys in cheesy lounges and white stretch limos. sounds like an episode of desperate housewife, right? it is not, this is how one couple, laura and ross' relationshipped played out in the media after he was caught embezzling money and asked for leniency because
the appeal now the defense can appeal the judge's ruling which says certain statements can come in. it's unbelievable that a child who isn't old enough or big enough to sit in the front seat of a car, can understand i have a right to keep my mouth shut and not do it. >> we always talk about people going into a courtroom and whether they're competent to stand trial. do they understand the charges against them and can they assist in their defense. is that kid competent according to those standards? >> according to the standards, the judge found that probably -- probably what the judge found was he didn't have to be told and there wasn't a determination that needed to be made whether or not he understood he had a right to keep his mouth shut because he either wasn't in custody yet or wasn't being interrogated. are you in custody and are you being asked a question that, if you answer it, it would incriminate you. >> i can't understand how a child can understand the process. you have understand the process to be in a courtroom to start with. clearly this thing has been moving along the pipe
for the massive defense cuts part of the fiscal cliff coming at the end of the year. >> it is still a troubled and dangerous world. and the idea of cutting our military commitment by a trillion dollars over this decade is unthinkable. and devastating. and when i become president of the united states, we will stop it. i will not cut our commitment to our military. >> the president once again blasted romney's hidden camera comments on the 47% of americans he dubbed victims of government dependence. >> i don't think we can get very far with leaders who writeoff half the nation as a bunch of victims who never take responsibility for their own lives. >> 47% of the people vote for the president no matter what. who -- >> the obama campaign turned romney's secretly recorded remarks into a devastating new ad claiming the gop nominee's words under the families and veterans. >> so my job is not to worry about -- they should take personal responsibility. >> romney two days in a row out to link national security to the nati sluggh recovery. he's seizing on new economic data revising down the 2nd quarter gd
. he is trying to make the case that the best defense is a better economy tying national security to the economy, but one very interesting thing that happened here, suzanne, mitt romney at the very end of this speech here said he is going to win pennsylvania. he said that earlier. he said it again he is going to pennsylvani the polls -- or latest cnn poll of polls shows mitt romney down by ten points here. it would be a very tough uphill climb for h to win tstate. >> right. >> i think it's in the romney campaign's interest to expand the map, and i think that's what they're trying to do. >> john mccain didn't win pennsylvania the last go round either. ditheyhange in any significant way when they look at the demographics and they get some sort of optimism or confidence from that? >> well, you know, pat toomey, the pennsylvania senate repuan annnced m romney. he was able to wi t state, and even though he had some credentials, he was ahead of the ub forroh at one time, and so this is a state that haseen trendiittlng a le more republican in recent years. they have a republican governor
in defense cuts that his running mate paul ryan voted for, he implied that would hurt suicide prevention programs for veterans even though the v.a. would be exempt from that, so i'm not sure he even understood what it was he was talking about. but at least he tried. at least veterans got a mention from him. even if it didn't make sense in policy terms. you do know that defense and veterans are two different -- at some point it should be possible with 40 days left to say veterans have to be more than just an applause line. right? you don't just get to use them for a photo op like the decommissioned battleship you used as a backdrop when you introduced paul ryan inexplicably in front of a battleship, another time when you didn't mention the war. even if you're not willing to talk about the war we are in that you would be taking over, veterans are not a hypothetical construct. the way they're treated is not an esoteric consequence of how we feel about them as a nation or how much military spending we have which is how mitt romney described it today. 40 days out from the election with the is
in and not look scared or defensive. he has to be cool and calm and confident and own the space. that is the most important thing for him. if he looks skiddish. those optics will be the most devastating thing for him. you would think would be about the pressure would be on the incumbent to defend the last four years in office. but in this debate, it is clear that 100% is on how does mitt romney handle the 47% question? >> i agree with crystal to put in other terms the undecided voters are sitting with their back toward the stage. the voice and he has to be strong and have an answer. the problem he has is which every way he turns he loses a piece of the argument. ro romney is going to lose a piece where he turns. one that he has used before, is to say look, i care about the 100%. look at what i did in massachusetts with romney care. if he give that is answer, he loses the strength of the argument. but i think he has no choice. i think he has to say that like the president, when the president in 2008 was overheard at a fundraiser talking about people clinging to funs and religion that people shorth
to the furthest checkpoint they ventured out to since the new orders. the first line of defense against the taliban. the checkpoint is now manned by afghan forces. but we found a disorganized group with few uniforms but plenty of guns, a potential danger for u.s. troops. >> f you come to an environment like this there are afghans with weapons. >> they're not going to put away their weapons because we're here. as you see, everybody else has got theirs, too. >> reporter: you've built this relationship on trust and you're saying well, hold on, maybe we don't trust you and -- that's not what you're saying. >> right. >> reporter: but that's the impression. >> that may be the message. we tried to soft than blow as much as we can. they felt guilty for the incidents themselves so they understood why we were trying to do this. we're going to continue this relationship as best we can given this and they were good with it. >> reporter: the soldiers that we were with hoped to finish vetting the afghan forces this week but, scott, commanders have a new list of conditions that have to be met before t
history, have seen many events, have witnessed many events. we have eight years of the holy defense in which saddam hussein backed by many western powers was against our nation, and then witnessed many other events. about ten years ago, perhaps, iran was under direct threat. those who have occupied iraq and afghanistan were threatening iran on a daily basis. i do not believe that we are under any special conditions now from those sources, but the fact that the world -- historic period in the world is coming to an end, an era during which power has set the first and last word. those holding the keys to power have set the fate of many populations. that era is coming to an end. >> the big catalyst for protests at the moment in the middle east was the video that was released which mocked the prophet muhammed. as a result, there was an attack as you know on the american embassy in benghazi in libya. the ambassador christopher stevens was murdered. do you condemn the attack which caused his murder? >> translator: fundamentally, first of all, any action that is provocative offends the reli
have all of the defensive means at our disposal. and we are ready to defend ourselves. but while this may be just an exercise, it is significant nonetheless. it comes at an extremely tense time, with israel saying iran's nuclear program must be stopped. and urging the u.s. to take a tougher line. josh? >> all right, martha raddatz, in washington. thank you for that. >>> now, to a developing story in southern california. at least 30 homes have been destroyed or damaged by this wildfire burning near san diego. one man has been killed. hundreds of other homes stand in the flames' path. strong winds fanning this fire, making it extra difficult for the crews on the front lines. we'll have updates as they become available. >>> a major setback for homeowners who lost everything in hurricane katrina. a federal court has reversed itself and now says the army corps of engineers is not responsible for the damage caused by a main shipping channel. the corps cannot be sued for damages. >>> if you use a discover credit card, you could be getting a refund. discover bank has agreed to pay back $
this year's plunge to bureaucratic inertia at the department of defense. >> face it, the pentagon does a lot of things really well in keeping us safe. sometimes some of the social issues it really just doesn't have the motivation that it has with other issues. part of it is because we're focused to keep america safe. i get that. >> in florida, absentee ballot request in florida were less than half the total. in virginia, they are at 1% of the 2008 levels. in ohio, north carolina, this year's request are one-tenth. the pentagon has not spent estimated 15 to 20 million per needed to establish the voting assistance offices that the d.o.d. is required by law to set up at all installations. >> it's the best it has been. we have the meth and means at the disposal, great website with online wizard to walk folks through. we have static download. go to ftvap.gov or hero's vote.org. >> three american troops were killed in eastern afghanistan today. that puts the death pole in afghanistan -- the death toll in afghanistan over 2,000. national security correspondent jennifer griffin shows us the video of
? >> well, wolf, defense secretary panetta a little bit unexpectedly getting right into the latest intelligence, what he knows and what he doesn't know about syria's chemical weapons. a top syrian opposition group claims it captured these missiles in damascus and said they had been adapted to carry chemical and biological warheads. cnn cannot independently confirm the claim. but now a new admission from defense secretary leon panetta. syria's chemical weapons have been on the move. and he's not sure what exactly has happened. >> there has been intelligence that there have been some moves that have taken place. where exactly that's taken place, we don't know. >> reporter: panetta insists that bashar al assad's forces still control the major chemical and biological sites, but there are security concerns. >> there has been some intelligence that with regards to some of these sites that there's been some movement in order to -- for the syrians to better secure what they -- the chemicals. >> reporter: rebels clearly are making a public play that they can get to the weapons. on this vide

about parental rights. i want to bring in defense attorney joey jackson. joey, this woman carried these babies nine months, went to the hospital, delivered those babies, and now there has to be a definition between what it is to be a mother versus is surrogate? can't she have any rights from what the get-go? >> and she will have rights. really quickly, here is how it works. you're either a mother or is surrogate. a mother says if you give birth of the child you're their mother unless you're a surrogate and a surrogate means a third party has contracted with you in writing, meaning provided an egg, provided the sperm such that you would carry it to term. plain and simple. so under texas law you're the mom surrogate. if you give birth you are the mom, you are entitled to those rights unless you can give me an agreement, show me one in writing that says you agreed to be a surrogate. >> with he have to take a break but here is where it gets weird. there was no contract, there was no deal, and yet those babies were taken away from the hospital and they don't even reside right now with

eisenhower named to defense secretary, said what's good for gm is good for america, and vice versa, he was ridiculed because most people understood that what is good for the big corporation in terms of profits is not necessarily good for workers, even though at that time gm was unionized and engine charlie's words more likely the fact then than they are right now. the fact is for the last 30 years america has seen corporations do better and better and better and yet the median wage has gone absolutely nowhere, adjusted for inflation. most people are more insecure in terms of their jobs and their benefits are drying up. corporate profits should not necessarily come at the expense of workers but, in fact, that is exactly what has happened and the bain framework, the bain strategy is at the center of this strategy overall. >> harvest is a very interesting word that he used. it's kind of like lingo, not a few years ago, you know, the term "out of the box." i remember back in the '80s when farming wasn't too bad and a certain player harvested so many numbers or we're going to go in and harv

. the story is bizarre and tragic. "outfront" tonight, defense attorney jonathan mandel. you represented johnny in two cases. can you tell us a bit about his behavior? >> behavior with me was fine when he was in treatment and also in the twin towers facility. if you were asking, i think you were asking about his behavior that led to the charges? is that right? >> so, i just -- something just came in i want to read to you. we just spoke be with the los angeles county probation department. i'll quote them. they said on may 17th, probation report states johnny lewis suffers from some form of chemical dependency, mental health issue and lack of permanent housing. given this, lewis will continue to be a threat to any community in which he may reside? do you agree with that? >> at the time, no and now, no. it may have turned out that way, but what was known in may about johnny was that he had two fairly minor offenses, which were fortunately not serious. and he did have a diagnosis eventually of chemically induced psychosis is not what the situation was when we talked about it with the distric
wineberger, former president ronald reagan's defense secretary, was implicated in the iran contra scandal shortly before election day. bad news that bush, who served as reagan's vice president, did not need. in 2004, a classic october surprise. osama bin laden released a video on october 29th, just four days before election day in a razor-thin race between president bush and john kerry. three years after 9/11, it served as a reminder of the terrorist threat and strategists in both parties believed helped president bush. more recently the term october surprise has come to mean a seismic event in the fall of an election year. though most have centered around foreign policy, others have been about the economy, like in 2008. when the economy imploded, john mccain's advisors say his campaign collapsed along with it and never recovered. historians say in order for an october surprise to have a real 11th hour impact, it has to feed into a narrative that already exists, whether it's carter's ineffectiveness or questions about mccain's credentials on the economy. >> it's not so much that suddenly
